    AsiaFortress Cup 11: Commencement Brief


    Aqua
    Hello, all participants of AsiaFortress Cup 11! 
    The first match threads will be going up very soon, and the AsiaFortress administration would like to brief you on some changes we have made to the tournament's structure and rules.
     
    Division 2 Format Changes
    Due to the overwhelming number of Division 2 teams, a Round Robin is not feasible. Therefore, we have switched to a Swiss-style format, over the course of 7 weeks to match the number of weeks for Division 1 and Division 3 teams.
     
    Teams will be ranked first by map wins, then by round wins and finally by rounds won minus rounds lost.
     
    Division 1 Format Changes
    On the other hand, due to the increased number of players in Division 1, teams will play the Round Robin sequence once only with a team on bye-week each week.
     

    As with Division 2 and 3, Division 1 teams will also be ranked first by map wins, then by round wins and finally by rounds won minus rounds lost.

     
    Whitelist Changes
    Administrators from ozfortress, ESEA, ETF2L and UGC as well as top players from each region have collaborated together to review the Global Whitelist. After the first public meeting, there was a proposal for controversial changes and this was met with harsh backlash from the international community.
     
    The administrators from ozfortress, ETF2L and ESEA met together and collated feedback from the top teams in their respective regions and adjusted the whitelist based on the discussion.
     
    Banned:
    • Rescue Ranger
    Unbanned:
    • Pomson 6000
    • Dalokohs Bar
     
    You can view the whitelist here. All changes should be reflected in AsiaFortress servers, and the whitelist can be downloaded in the AFC 11 Config+Map Pack.
     
    Cast Requests
    a Cast Request thread has been created for community members to request permission for a cast.
     
    This will allow us to help promote your casts on platforms such as our Steam group and Facebook page. It also helps us to ensure that there is no conflict of interest (e.g. caster is on one of the teams being cast) and to provide assistance should you need it.
     
    Transfer Window
    Please note that all transfers have to be approved by AsiaFortress Administrators, and will only take effect from the next week and onwards.
     
    Roster Lock and Team Directory
    Do note that rosters are locked until the first Transfer window. Do not add an Administrator to request for a roster change as it will not be allowed.
     
    The Team Directory is a record of all teams participating in AFC 11, along with links to their leaders and members. It will serve as the definitive record of each team's roster. If you spot an error in your team's roster, please inform your Division Administrator immediately.
     
    That concludes the commencement brief for AsiaFortress Cup 11! The first week's Match Threads will be going up soon, and you can get to scheduling your first matches of the season.
     
    As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask your Division Administrator.
     
    Best of luck, and may the best team win!
